Secondary School Nutrition Talks & Workshops

Paula Duggan Balance Nutrition does interactive nutrition talks, sports nutrition talks and wellbeing talks in secondary schools
  • In a secondary school setting, I offer 1hr, 80-minute & 2-hour sessions per group. The combined Nutrition talk & Food labelling workshop is growing increasingly popular. Following a discussion with each individual school, I tailor nutrition talks as required, for instance I may focus on sports or well-being. 
  • Furthermore, I endeavour to be as flexible as possible with schools and class times and therefore, accommodate each school whether they have 40 minute or 1-hour class times. In addition, I am happy to talk to small or large groups, however the workshop which is a more practical session only suits a smaller group (max 30). My talks are lively, interactive & informative and above all else pitched at student’s level.

Some topics covered

Healthy Eating Workshops for Primary School

Age appropriate healthy eating workshop - fun talk - food demos - visual games - sample healthy lunchboxes - sugar & fizzy drink experiment - recipes for school - recipes & handout for parents - review of healthy eating policy

  • I do interactive healthy eating workshops in primary schools which are tailored to specific age groups and also include some fun games. Furthermore, I bring along lots of examples of healthy foods, school lunch ideas and even healthy breakfast ideas.

    My primary focus is on sugar as this can be a big issue with children’s diets today. One thing I love to do is to show kids visually how many spoons of sugar are in various treats and drinks. For instance, I do a little experiment with primary school pupils to show them just how sugary fizzy drinks really are!!

    I also focus on making the healthier choice most of the time and being brave and trying new foods.

    In addition, I have a handout for parents packed with recipes suitable for kids, tips on preparing a healthy lunch box & lastly, some advice on dealing with fussy eaters!
